Abstract:

An attempt was made to measure the transient ground displacement for the surface and underground shots of Operation JANGLE. The method of high speed photography of the ground motion is described. Negative results were obtained for both the surface and underground shots. This method does not appear promising for any future nuclear surface tests. With good photography, this method has considerable promise for underground nuclear explosions and is recommended for future tests. Author
